Reese Witherspoon may have surprised us by getting arrested over the weekend, but she certainly isn't the first A-lister to be dragged in by police.

The Oscar-winning actress apparently had a touch of celebrity entitlement syndrome when cops pulled her husband Jim Toth over, barking "Do you know my name?".

She has said today that she is deeply embarrassed over the incident... and, to be fair, we'd be surprised if she ever got taken into custody again.

She attended the premiere for new film Mud last night, putting on a brave face and going some distance to facing the music... but she didn't quite muster up enough strength to face the reporters!
